Call of Duty: Warzone trick one-shots Helicopters with unusual weapon

A bizarre trick to taking down Call of Duty: Warzone’s Helicopters lets players essentially one-shot possibly the most oppressive vehicle in the battle royale.

The Helicopter is a four-seater aircraft that can zoom in and out of an area to deliver brutal sweeps of gunfire before either dropping off a squad or getting out of dodge.

Because of how scarce mobility can be in Warzone, the Helicopter can be a pivotal craft to man in order to pin down entire teams while making a counterplay near impossible – that is unless you have a UAV drone.

Warzone players having trouble with Helicopters will be delighted to see how to instantly take them out.

The recon tool is a remote-controlled drone that can be used to tag and target players from above. While it can be shot down by an opponent, it can also be used as a flying obstruction for incoming Helicopters.

Reddit user ‘Ernis766’ showed how potent the little piece of machinery can be against a loaded chopper, making quick work of the vehicle.

As a lone player, Ernis was looking for cover from a distant team that had an angle on them. Turning the corner, they took out their UAV drone to get a better look at what they were up against.

Through the drone’s cam, they saw three players loading up into a Helicopter preparing to push on Ernis’ position.

Obviously the situation would have been a bit too extreme for one player to take care of by themselves, so they immediately improvised and used the drone to run blockade against the incoming craft.

But it was surprising to see how effective the strat proved to be after seeing the Helicopter smoldering in pieces along with their drone.

The UAV is apparently an effective tool against Helicopters.

It was strange to not see any new entries in the kill feed after the explosion, but Ernis later confirmed that indeed “they all died” following the collision with the UAV.

That’s the best thing about Warzone and similar games in the genre – a player’s best weapon against the rest of the lobby isn’t just in the loadouts they carry, but how they use them in a dire situation.

This was an incredible example of that, and something that wouldn’t be surprising if more Warzone players test it out after seeing it.

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War minimum PC specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit or higher
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 50GB for MP only, 175GB for all game modes
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670/Geforce GTX 1650/Radeon HD 7950

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core I5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970/GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390/AMD RX 580

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs with ray-tracing

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

Black Ops Cold War competitive PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
